Safety 

The GT-Air 2 has an outer shell, made of AIM (Advanced Integrated Matrix). Many other Shoei models use this exact same high-end material. This consists of glass fibers and multi-composite fibers in different layers. This gives the shell optimum rigidity and is extremely shock absorbent. Another characteristic of this material is that AIM is made to absorb different impact scenarios. From the highest impacts to the lower forms of impacts. Shoei is known for producing high quality helmets, and the AIM is thoroughly tested by the Japanese manufacturer. The GT-Air 2 has a stainless steel Micro ratchet. This has moved slightly forward compared to the GT-AIR. This improvement was made, based on feedback from drivers. They have indicated that they find the closure too close to the throat. This is a known problem with some other brands as well, such as Schuberth, that they put the ratchet too close to the throat. This issue is tackled with the new GT Air. Also the ventilation was changed.

Ventilation 

Nothing feels better than a sunny Sunday afternoon trip. One condition to absolutely get everything out of your trip, is to make sure you have a well ventilating helmet that keeps your head cool, even when keeping your focus on those higher speeds. A helmet that keeps wind noise out, but bring in a cool airflow and extract the warm air out of your helmet. A high-end quality helmet does exactly this. It keeps your head cool while keeping the noise out. The GT-AIR 2 has a particularly good ventilation system. The air inlets on top of the helmet are more extensive and bring in more cool air compared to the GT-Air. The air outlets at the rear, that extract the hot air, are open at all times resulting in an optimal air flow in the helmet. This was not the case with the original gt air. This gives a constant and extremely pleasant temperature in the helmet.

Visor & Internal Sun Shield

The extra wide external visor of the GT-AIR 2 is called the CNS-1. The Max Vision pinlock ready visor is anti-fog, anti-scratch and comes as standard in clear visor with a pinlock lens. Furthermore, the GT-AIR II has an internal sun visor. As mentioned above, the sun visor of the GT-AIR 2 has become slightly longer vertically and the opening at the nose has also been improved compared to the predecessor. The sun visor is called QSV 2 visor and it is DIN EN 1836 standard European certified. This is a European standard certification for sunglasses. It means that it gives you a good protection against the sun, to enable a comfortable and safe riding experience.

Noise Insulation

The GT-Air 2 is one of the quietest helmets available in this range. And this is quite spectacular for a sports helmet. The highly aerodynamic design, the 3D lining and the seamlessly connected visor, contribute to a high noise reduction in this helmet. Shoei is a manufacturer that develops their helmets for an extended period of time in a windtunnel before actually releasing them. We saw this with other models as well. Each tiny detail is being put to the test before it is approved on the design. Shoei has also co-developed an intercom system with leading communications brand Sena, specifically for the GT-AIR 2. This intercom system is called the SRL-2 and can be fully integrated into the helmet and this contributes to less noise than its predecessor the GT-AIR. Pre cut channel are made in the inner shell to hide the system into the helmet.

Inner Lining

The inner liner is one of the most important parts of what makes a quality helmet. Especially in the high-end segment the inner liners offer great comfort, ventilation and noise insulation. Shoei helmets in particular are known for having a high quality inner liner. The GT Air 2 is no different. The 3D anti-bacterial liner is removable and washable. But many other brands (lower-end) offer this as well. It is mainly the material and different layers that make the difference compared to other brands. The GT Air II lining is exceptionally good at absorbing moisture quickly and also drying up quickly. The cheek pads are available in different sizes to suit your personal preferences. The liner is equipped with E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) If necessary, the liner can be removed before the helmet is removed from the head. Furthermore, the liner is prepared for the SENA SRL-2 communication system.
